    Well, if perhaps you could start by telling us the names of some
    languages which make the distinction in lower case, we might then be
    able to find these materials showing what they do in upper case. But we
    want to make sure that these are not examples of what Mark just called
    the "many (perhaps most) uncased characters (in bicameral scripts) that
    are archaic or special purpose (eg IPA)."
